I think it's the complete opposite. If their loyalties didn't lie with the U.S., then they wouldn't be offended because those kids in the stands would have been speaking the truth. If you're a proud American and someone claims that you're not, how is that not offensive?

It's implied. "You're not from the USA" doesn't make a good celebratory chant.

Really do I need to pull out a box of tissue for the whiners on both sides of the issue. Everyone is so sensitive. Charles Bronson must be rolling in his grave

And thanks to the media for making San Antonio look like Selma Alabama in the 60's

There are going to be two types of ethnic Mexicans (as well as other Hispanics) attending AH district schools. Those who are from working class backgrounds and most likely live in apartments and those who come from upper class families.

As stated by others those from working class families are not the most welcomed among the majority student population. I used to know a few people who attended their years ago including one who played football. Some transferred out. So this is nothing new.

I spoke to one parent of an elementary student recently and they reported ethnic tension between himself, some parents, and at least one teacher, during a parent function. It was just one minor incident, it was resolved, and people move on so unsure if that is representative of a greater pattern but I have a feeling those students from working class backgrounds attending AHHS are not exactly exuberant with school spirit over this.

This happened before to Lanier HS. Not only did Cedar Park chant "USA, USA," but they chanted other things that made it completely obvious they were being racist and not patriotic by implying that the Lanier players were illegal immigrants.

They also chanted “Arizona, Arizona, Arizona,” a reference to the state that became ground zero for immigration reform last year when it passed a controversial immigration bill, and “This is not soccer, this is not soccer.” The latter is an apparent reference to the stereotype that Hispanics are better suited for soccer than basketball.

I, too, went to school with a girl who transferred out of AH. She was Hispanic, but her complaint wasn't that the school was racist; she said there was a lot of classism and pill popping.
